What a wonderful last couple of days I have had. The weather has been beautiful and it has given me a chance to enjoy the sunshine and the warmth of that beautiful sunshine. Yep, I said warmth. It has been in the 50’s the past couple days and today it is suppose to be close to 60. YAHOO!!!! OMGosh, that in itself is exciting. We have been taking walks in the evening and yes we have been taking Qbert too. He has been awfully close to hanging himself a couple of times, but I am sure he will get use to the leash soon. He just enjoys being out in the backyard and being able to run. That is the nice thing about a fenced in yard. Oh, I let him out to go potty yesterday and went to pick him up and he took off. You all should have seen me…. I was trying to slowly creep up on him and then catch him and he took off again. I then started chasing him and remind you that I have my dear hubby’s boots on. I was quite a site to say the least. I was about ready to flip off those gosh darn boots and take off after the dog. Gotta love the puppy in him. At least I got a work out – right?
Some more exciting news to share with all of you….. I went to North Shore Primitives on Saturday and took in some signs and game-boards. Well, I heard from Vickie yesterday and it sounds like my signs/game-boards are selling. She had mentioned that she sold a couple just yesterday morning. Pretty exciting – huh? It has been very exciting for me to say the least. I am thrilled to have my items being sold off of her shelves and in my favorite prim shop. Thank you Vickie for your kindness and faith in me!! I sure to appreciate your kindness more then you will ever know.
Well, let’s get to my thrift store finds. Mom and I were on our way home on Saturday and I had to stop by this new store that opened locally. To be honest I am not sure if it is a thrift store or second hand, but I found some cheap goodies and thought I would share them with you today. I was absolutely thrilled when I found this ladder-back chair. It was in great shape and the seat was in excellent condition. I plan on actually making another make-do chair out of it. I want to re-finish my bedroom soon and thought this would look great in there. So, here is the chair that I picked up for $9.99. Question ~ why not just ask $10.00 for the chair? I told you it was in great shape.
I also picked up what they call is a food saver, but I call it a make-do fly screen cover. This screen cover is actually quite large, but I thought it would look great re-finished of course and maybe even placed on my farm table with a few pantry cakes under it. Lots of potential after I remove that ugly handle and paint it. Don’t ya think?
I picked these items up at Craft 2000 on Friday. I have been wanting these little boxes for my laundry room and when I saw the picture of George Washington……well, I squealed really loud. I was so excited to find it. It will look perfect next to my picture of Honest Abe that I should be receiving from Susie. Yep, those will be going into my bedroom once it is finished.
Don’t you love those little boxes? I thought they would look perfect in my laundry room.
The red and white stripes are lightly coffee stained, but I might have to take them out and re-stain them. Just not sure if it is dark enough for me. I guess we will see.
Well, that is it for today. Hope you all are doing well and hopefully you too are receiving some nice weather.
Until Next Time ~ Blessings, Lisa
